Suspected female shoplifters arrested after high speed chase

Cordele — Joint efforts by law enforcement officers here and in Worth County led to the arrest early Friday evening of two alleged female shoplifters who led officers on a high speed chase.

An incident report from the Crisp County Sheriff’s Department showed deputies were on Georgia 300 looking for a vehicle Cordele police said was believed to have been involved in a shoplifting incident at Walmart.

Deputy Keon Sales was traveling north when he spotted a vehicle matching that description and alerted Deputy Lisa Stocks of that sighting. Upon seeing the southbound car, Stocks attempted to make a traffic stop by activating the blue lights and siren of her cruiser.

When the vehicle refused to stop, other officers including Maj. Ken Partain were informed of the chase in which he joined as the speeding car continued to travel toward Albany.

The car continued on in to Warwick where police officers Kyle Barfield and Bill Ryder took over the chase until the driver lost control in a curve and ran off the road before the vehicle came to a stop when it struck a tree.

Both occupants immediately exited the vehicle and fled on foot into a nearby cemetery before were later being apprehended by the Warwick officers who them detained for the Crisp County Sheriff’s Department.

In addition to the shoplifting charge filed by Cordele police,  the driver, 18-year-old Kiara Santeria Perry, has been cited for speeding in excess of maximum limits, driving without a valid license and reckless driver. She remained in jail here as of 3 p.m. Tuesday.

The passenger, Donnesa Walker, 20, who at the moment is charged only with shoplifting has been released on bond.
